and seconded, the amendment by supervise are olague, is the fact that the amendment recognizes the need for us to really assess the situation and understand, and have a better understanding of what the unintended consequences might be and to have a little bit more analysis. the amendment actually makes the implementation of the ordinance contingent on that analysis and that makes sense to wait until that is completed before we actually move forward before implementing something like this. so i will be supportive of the amendment that supervisor olague introduced. and i think that it makes sense to do something. but i do fear that going forward we might have some unintended consequences that we were not expecting to have. >> so, thank you. >> supervisor. avalos. >> thank you. >> one thing that i forgot to mention were places like my district where there are major streets that people are parking oversized vehicles on, often those are people who live in the neighborhood and don't have another place to store their vehicles. i don't think that it is appropriate to park their vehicles there because

that have a address and they are parked elsewhere. and so i wanted to participate that. i think that olague brought up the point of does it create movement from place to place, i think that is a critical question and i think if we were not to pass this and leave it as is, we would have the same continued problem, we don't see any change or any ability to move forward. verses if we have this mta, it has committed to us to be able to move and proceed carefully with this legislation to be selective about the face that they do put the signs up and to work in consultation with each supervisor to make sure that the areas where they are looking at and each of the districts are places that we want to have the restrictions. i think that this is a commitment that they have made as they move forward and the legislation passed and it is absolutely valid and great point and that is why, we are very careful about how it is that this is approached. and that is also why as part of the approach we did not put this as a city-wide restriction. this is something that will be used in chronickly impacted area. a
